BOOK BY DR. ALICE COBB

Alice CobbWith Looking Upward
A new (old) novel by Dr. Alice Cobb

The original manuscript for Alice Cobb’s novel With Looking Upward was actually written in the 1940s.  Alice gave Louis Miles, later a professor at a small college in North Carolina, the manuscript to read in 1956, after she had endured several setbacks in her attempts to get it published.  Louis read it that summer while he was working at a resort hotel in the Adirondacks.  

For some time Alice had been living in disappointment because Doubleday of New York, who had initially agreed to publish the book, decided against it because it was “a little too controversial”.  There is the prospect of homosexuality hinted at obliquely in the plot and it was this element that Doubleday feared was too dangerous to publish in the years 1950-52.  The storyline deals with the different life choices of two brothers, one a soldier in World War II, and the other a missionary to China.

This manuscript sat on the bookshelf of Lewis Miles many years and when he would approach Alice about what to do with it she would tell him to hold on to it and they would do something with it one day.  That day didn’t happen until 2011, the year her long dormant book finally was published by Stone Ivy Press. 
           
Copies of Dr. Alice Cobb’s novel are available at the Front Porch at Scarritt-Bennett for $25 plus tax. You may also order a copy by emailing giftsandbooks@scarrittbennett.org. (Please note, an additional shipping charge will apply.)

Dr. Cobb taught for many years at Scarritt College in the Social Science Department beginning in 1952.   The publication of this novel owes much of its life to the dedication and perseverance of Ruth Pool Moore.
